‘Southern Fried’ – Rex Nelson shares humor, insight about Arkansas

May 18, 2017

Rex Nelson knows Arkansas. He has served the state in different fields — educational, political and financial — and he loves sharing his insights about those things, as well as Arkansas’ own culture.

Nelson brought his brand of humor and insight to the Batesville Kiwanis Club Friday. He spoke about different aspects of his life, but mainly focused on what he called revolutions in Arkansas.

Nelson was introduced to the club by state Rep. James Sturch.

“I met him while I was in college,” Sturch said, adding that he has known Nelson for eight years after first meeting him during a gathering of the Political Animals in Little Rock at the Governor’s Mansion. “He’s an expert on everything Arkansas. Rex is a great man and a great mentor to me.”

The Political Animals are an organization made up of people interested in Arkansas politics, which was formed in 1983. Nelson is also chair of that group.
